Canyon Overlook Trail is an easy hike in Zion National Park that features breathtaking views of Zion Canyon. This trail is kid friendly, but be cautious there are drop-offs. The park says this hike has "long drop-offs, mostly fenced. Rocky and uneven trail ends at viewpoint of Pine Creek Canyon and lower Zion Canyon. Parking lot is right-turn only." There are three campgrounds in Zion National Park. The South and Watchman Campgrounds are located in Zion Canyon. The Lava Point Campground is roughly an hours drive from Zion Canyon on the Kolob Terrace Road.
